It is sad news to hear the great actor, Alan Rickman, has passed away at the age of 69. More recently, Rickman gained a new generation of fans from his role in the Harry Potter films.
In a post of Facebook from Harry Potter, “We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our beloved Alan Rickman who played Professor Severus Snape. Harry Potter fans will miss him very much. He was a wonderful actor and a very dear friend,” the status read with this photo of Professor Severus Snape.
In one of Rickman’s early films, he played the ghost lover in Truly, Madly, Deeply, which was a much softer role and a beautiful love story.
Rickman married his longtime girlfriend Rima Horton in 2012, and the pair had been together since their late teens. You can view a recent tribute posted on AlanRickman.com to celebrate the life of this brilliant actor.
